Week 16 NFL Picks: Packers Expected to Maintain Recent Success Against Steelers

Mike Ehrmann

After last week's insane win in Dallas, APC believes that the Packers can keep it up in their final home game of the regular season.

Now that the Packers have kept their playoff hopes alive by stunning everyone in Jerry World in the second half on Sunday, we authors of Acme Packing Company are happy to pick up the pieces of a brutal week picking games in Week 15. We move on to the second-to-last week of the season and find a handful of games between playoff contenders this week.

I assure you that everyone will be more pleased with our predictions this week than you were before last week's game. That does mean that we can't claim a deliberate reverse-jinx if the game goes the opposite way, though.

Here are our picks, and as always, get yours in at the APC Pick'em contest in the fanposts:

Game Tex Jason Josh Tony Dan Eric VCF Consensus
MIA @ BUF MIA MIA MIA MIA MIA MIA MIA MIA
CLE @ NYJ NYJ NYJ CLE CLE NYJ NYJ NYJ NYJ

NE @ BAL NE BAL NE NE BAL BAL NE Tie
PIT @ GB GB GB GB GB GB GB GB GB
OAK @ SD SD SD SD SD SD SD SD SD
CHI @ PHI PHI PHI PHI CHI PHI PHI PHI PHI
ATL @ SF SF SF SF SF SF SF SF SF

Here we have a number of unanimous picks this week: the Dolphins, Bengals, Broncos, Chiefs, Lions, Seahawks, Packers, Chargers, and 49ers are all unanimous, a rather ridiculous 9 out of 16 games. Naturally, we'll probably go 4-5 in those games. But if the Packers are one of the four, we'll all be perfectly happy with that.

Author Overall Week 15
Eric 149-74-1 9-7
Jason 144-79-1 9-7
VCF 143-80-1 8-8
Dan 141-82-1 9-7
Tex 138-85-1 7-9
Josh 137-86-1 9-7
Tony 134-89-1 8-8
Consensus 142-81-1 9-7

It wasn't exactly a banner week for APC picking the week 15 games, so hopefully we'll bounce back in the second-to-last week of the season. Where do you think we went wrong this week?
